Brembo unveils new line of light-weight aluminum fixed calipers

Brake expert Brembo has unveiled a new family of aluminum fixed calipers for high-end vehicles at the 2015 International Motor Show in Frankfurt. These new calipers are available in three versions: 17 inches (5.9 kg), 18 inches (7.7 kg) and 19 inches (8 kg) – all providing a lightweight solution for vehicles with a high braking disc surface.

Such discs typically need larger yet heavier calipers. But with Brembo’s new aluminum calipers, an increase in size does not necessarily mean a large surge in weight. Brembo’s new fixed caliper features a size just right for discs with high braking surfaces, but with incredible lightness.

Interestingly, Brembo has been developing this lightweight brake since late 2011 and has invested over 100,000 development hours. Production of the brakes has been commenced just recently.
